The Art Gallery of NSW expansion is setting new standards for sustainable design

The Art Gallery of New South Wales’ expansion – the Sydney Modern Project - is the first art museum to receive a 6-star Green Star design rating from Australia’s Green Building Council. The Sydney Modern Project will almost double exhibition space and create a prominent destination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture.

The project is featured as part of Building A Better Future, a series of short films exploring leading sustainable developments from around the world. Produced by BBC Story Works and presented by the World Green Building Council, the series highlights the way in which architecture can have a profound effect on the quality of people’s lives. The series aims to raise awareness of the positive impacts of green buildings and present the business case for building sustainably.

Infrastructure NSW is managing the delivery of the Sydney Modern Project on behalf of the NSW Government and Art Gallery of New South Wales.
